    I used Black Cohosh for my menopause symptoms along with another over the counter called estroven. Both helped I don't remember any side effects.

    When menopause got really rough I went on Paxil for a year and weaned off with no problems.

    Well, it's known to help the uterus work efficiently, so I can't see it doing any harm.

    If it doesn't work you could try blue cohosh. See a homoeopath, because there are lots of remedies for the menopause and they have to be specifically prescribed by a qualified homoeopath.

    When I worked as a midwife I used a lot of homoeopathic remedies - with the guidance of a homoeopath. All the best, Tess
